    If the URLs appear cloaked but you are not sent to the correct page cloaking has not been set up properly, see http://wprobot.net/blog/how-to-set-up-wp-robot-link-cloaking/

    The url from the amazon feed does not appear cloacked.It's a link to the item without my ID that looks like http://amazon.com/(product)

    This only happens when i post products from the feed. When i use keywords posts are cloaked properly. I mean only module posts do not cloak amazon links. The amazon module works fine.

    For example try this feed:http://www.amazon.com/rss/movers-and-shakers/baby-products/ref=pd_ms_rss_link

    It will post products ,description and such but link to the product will not be cloaked.

    Please help,
    Thank you!

    Can't comment on the feed currently, I'll have to test that on my blog. May I ask why you are using the Amazon RSS feed instead of the module?

    I can answer it in PM if you really interested. There is a benefit to it.

    No, keep your trade secret in that case. ;) Was just wondering.

    I just tested the feed and all links were cloaked correctly for me. The exception was the source link at the bottom (which is normal) - was that what you were refering to?

  7. A video tutorial please on how to set this up :) ...

    Maybe you plan on that when you do the main video tutorial :)

    Video tutorials are great for people like me with ADD I just learn by seeing it done.
